    usually just consists of charging it fully overnight (8 hours) then fully discharging it, then fully charging it again.

    then use as normal.

    fist thing i did was charge it fully, let it drain, then charge it full and use normal. thats kinda obvious...i thought it was something you had to run on the computer...letting it drain isn't calibrating it...

    most battery packs do re-calibrate their runtime reporting with this, however.
